Kung fu panderer: Jackie Chan hired to shill for China2/1/2013
Jackie Chan is now a heavy hitter in politics as well as in the martial arts. The 58-year-old star has been appointed a national-level delegate of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, one of the nation's top political advisory bodies. The move hasn't surprised China-watchers, who note that Chan has grown increasingly vocal in his nationalistic defense of his homeland. Last month he called the United States "the most corrupt" country on the globe in response to its criticism of China. OK, Jackie. We'll be waiting for your update on how wonderful it is to be a cog in the wheel of a communist dictatorship. [Source]
